Mass Change on November 5th and Adoration
Evening Mass on November 5th will be at 6:30 on November 5th. This is because we will be hosting an Adoration night from 7:30-10 pm that Friday! This adoration night is for all parishioners; there will be Praise and Worship, Confession and a social after!
This Tuesday at 6:30, we are hosting a workshop on how to Invite your friends and family to parish events. The night will kick off with Pizza!
We often want to reach out to people, but we feel awkward or don't know what to say. Eric Chow will be giving a talk on practical tips on how to invite people, whether to Alpha, Adoration, or Mass.
Inviting people to the parish events is a crucial part of evangelization and parish renewal!
All Saints Day Art Exhibit
We are looking forward to celebrating All Saints Parish Feast on Sunday, October 31st, 2021, with a walk-thru art exhibit featuring Art Work from the young people in the Parish!
We would like to invite all young people in our Parish to submit an entry! It could be an art form, such as posters (digital or hand-drawn), paintings, sculptures, collage, etc. The theme for the exhibit is An Image of my Favorite Saint.
It will be displayed at the Parish Hall from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm for anyone to view and appreciate. There will be raffle prizes for all people who visit the exhibit.
Entries must be brought in by October 25th, 5:00 pm at the Parish Office.
All Saints Young Adults are praying and drinking together this weekend! Join us this Saturday for 5:00 pm Mass. Afterwards, we'll be headed to Lively hood pub till about 10:00 pm. Feel free to invite friends!
